  1. Super professional

    The band were super professional organising everything, replying to any questions incredibly quickly and making sure it was a stress free experience. We’d certainly recommend Highly Swung for anyone seeking the full vintage experience.”

  2. Amazing performance

    Dear Mike,
    I wanted to get in touch to say a huge thank you for Highly Swung’s amazing performance yesterday!

    The event was a huge success for us and proved to be an amazing opportunity for us to meet so many new people – we are in a very happy place today. You were so brilliant and we had such lovely feedback from everyone about the music – we will definitely keep you in mind for any future events that we have.

  3. One to remember

    The whole team were simply a joy to work with from start to finish and made all of the organisation and logistics so simple and easy. We are really grateful to Highly Swung for their creativity, professionalism, flexibility, and hard work.
    Thank you for making our wedding party one to remember!

  4. Super talented

    Rob and I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the band for the music at our wedding! They were phenomenal and super talented, and everyone loved them. It was amazing to see everyone on the dance floor at the end of the night! We also loved the vintage covers – thank you for suggesting that.

    We loved working with you and found the whole experience from booking the band to the wedding day really professional. You were so helpful and responsive – thank you so much!

  5. Definitely a highlight

    Dear Mike, Just wanted to say a huge, huge thank you to you and your incredible band that made our day come to life. We loved all the music – as you know, it was some guests’ favourite part of the wedding!! I say – fair enough! Highly Swung were definitely a highlight for us as well and the sounds of the string quartet playing the first strains of the Beatitudes and that epic finale and encore from the full band will stay with me forever.

  6. You were exceptional

    Dear Mike, I know I thanked you on the night but just wanted to do so again in the cold light of day. You and your band were fantastic, not just brilliant at the music but also lovely, helpful and a total pleasure to work with.
    Thank you so much and please pass my thanks on to your team.
    My Mother literally had the party of her life and you were a big part of that…. you were exceptional
